To run across Iceland – from East to West – in just under 17 days.
The route is one which we think may never have been followed before – but is loosely based on some routes which we know have been covered.
The map above is (clearly) oversimplified and purely for guidance – but gives a rough plan of where we will be going. A precise route will be published here before we head out to Iceland.
For now – the basics:
Start Point: Sandvik – Easternmost Point of Mainland Iceland
End Point: Öndverðarnes lighthouse
Total Distance: 796km (495 Miles)
Daily Distance: 50km (31 Miles)
Start Date: 2nd June 2018 (Fly 1st June)
Estimated Finish Date: 18th June 2018
In total there will be five of us taking part in this run. Our mugs are provided below and a touch more information can be found here.
